Courses for transfer student

xtraxtra Registered User Posts: 761 Member
Hi people.

I will be a transfer student the next semester. However, most of the courses that I want to take have either been already filled or close to filling. And the spring transfer students cannot register until orientation.

So do you guys know the chances of getting into these classes:
311D-Introductory Biology II
Chem 310N- organic chemistry II
organic chemistry lab that goes with chem 310N
Thanks

    Some classes will open up on Jan 7, when some students forget to pay for spring classes on time. Maybe that will help. When you are a few weeks into spring semester, it would be great if you would post what happened, if you were able to get into the classes you needed.

    Thanks midwestmom, the problem is I cannot register until I attend my orientation on January 11 because I am a transfer student. But thank you for your post anyway.

    hey I'm in the same situation you are. Besides people dropping due to nonpayment, I also heard that your advisor can push you into some classes if they think they really need to.

    The department chair of an academic department can use his or her administrative staff and "power" to get you into a class in his or her department by making a space for you. There is an administrative person in every department who has access to the UT systems needed to do this.

    Asking an individual professor to please let you join his or her class really doesn't work at Texas (at other schools, this works!), but, for example, if you were admitted as a chem major and you can't continue as a chem major if you don't get into second semester organic chemistry, you or your advisor or someone at UT should be able to talk to the "powers that be" in the chemistry department to get you into some section of that class (it might be the 8 am section or the 6 pm section).
